This is my first debate here and I think this will be an interesting topic. I have not seen it on this site. As Pro I will contend marijuana should indeed be legalized. Con will argue it should NOT be legalized.

Rules:

In the first round Con will open the argument

If anyone forfeits any round it will be an automatic 7 points

Video sources are allowed

I look forward to a interesting debate!

Further more, I believe the use of marijuana is, in the majority, for status quo among young people.
Should it be legalized, this would be more accesible to younger audiences. Thus creating a dangerous enviroment
in whice no one could be 100% sure of their saftey and the safety of their children. Also, while the affects of marijuana are largely unknown, I myself have used marijuana and I know the negative affects it can cause.
Mind you I have been clean of any drugs for over a year.

In conclusion, I believe leagalizing marijuana is a bad idea for these reasons. Thank you for the opportunity to state my beliefs on such a controversial topic. Good luck to you.

It appears that I have already won this debate. The rules created by the Instigator states so.

"Legalize it and deal with it" until your house is broken into for drug money.

I'd like to accept this, but I may wait.

Practically all the members would support legalization nowadays. I might take this to clarify my thinking on the issue.

It's been awhile since it was done. Though it has been done a lot in the past.
